  • Can negate any card effect.
  • Destroys the negated card.


  • Needs to discard same type of card to negate an effect, making this somewhat situational.


Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord

When you negate an effect with Ultimate Providence, you can Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord special summoned special summoned from your hand and depending on what you negate he activates a different effect. And since Ultimate Providence can negate any card effect, you can choose what to negate and have Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord gain a specific effect.

Bountiful Artemis

Having Bountiful Artemis Face-up when you use counter traps allows you to draw a card. This will help you recover from the cost of using Ultimate Providence.

A Cat of Ill Omens

You can use A Cat of Ill Omen to search this card and put it at the top of your deck.

Same. One after the other.
Rebound doesn't work while farming LV40 Mai.. against that TRAP wich return our monster, maybe something about "Select a target" or not, but works against Joeybird and Gulldos
I think this card is bugged. I've got two in my deck and whenever the opponent uses a spell or trap card literally nothing happens. I don't get a prompt or anything to use it.

Do you have a spell or trap card in your hand? You need to discard the same type that you're trying to negate

if your rival uses magic discard a magic, and trap =
This card from time to time does not work, especially against fast spells here. It fits very well in some decks but it annoys me too much when it happens, I hope they get the error.
this + fabled lurrie
I find this card to be either very helpful or completely useless. It all depends on having a good balance of card types in your deck and having a good hand because when you have ultimate providence and only 1 type of card in your hand, it will be a waste of a spell/trap card zone space. for that reason, I can only reccomend this card to players using the skill balance.
lol, this card is the "swiss-army-knife" of monster/spell/trap effect removal. If you don't know which "jammer" counter trap card to use, just throw in this one, and with the cost of discarding the same type of card as the effect used by your opponent, you have a chance to counter any of those effects.
how the fuck is this a rare?

It's used to be a meta card since 2016. But meta changed then

" Anoymous 21days ago how the fuck is this a rare?" -- Shut up. It's good that we get this card being more accessible to players as a rare than something like UR or SR.
This card looks great. I can't wait to start using it

Yes, i tried 3 CV, don't work well, unless you already have a BEWD on the field, this card caunter well relinquished and mako decks, my issue is only against 3*d Endymion, or Buster sword fusion decks
I laugh so much when a HHG deck relinquished, get all destroyed by a R card and one monster discard, feels bad
